Foot Pain

What is it?

Feet not only carry you throughout the day, but also support the weight of the rest of the body. The human foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Foot pain can occur when any of these parts are injured, overused, or affected by a condition that causes inflammation. Foot pain can also be related to injured foot nerves or foot deformities. Pain may vary or worsen throughout the day or when performing specific activities. Depending on the source(s) of the foot issue, you may feel burning, aching, sharp pain, tingling or numbness.

-Injured bones, ligaments or tendons
